    Disappointing for a 5 star hotel. The service was very unwelcoming. The staff. Eed a customer service training to give the guests a worthwhile stay away from home. From the restaurant staff, bar and spa stuff, no sense of customer service.More

    I had a pleasant stay, except the delay on checking us in. The conference room allocated had thinners fumes and were moved to another one which delayed our schedule. But overall, I enjoyed the stay. I will come back again.More
